President For A Day
Have you thought about what it would be like to be the president of Widener University?
Well, now you can seize the day – one day to be exact – to sit in the corner office
of Old Main. For one day during the spring semester, President Harris will swap roles
with you as you become “President for a Day.” Students, faculty, and administrators
will call you, "Madam or Mister President."
That’s right, President Harris attends your classes and takes on your obligations as a student, for a day, while you attend the events and meetings on his schedule and run the university. All undergraduate students are encouraged to apply. Applications will be available on this site beginning on January 14 for students who would like to serve as the 2014 President for a Day.
